Since June in Lancaster is tourist season, no hotels were willing to reserve a large block of rooms for us at a good discount. There are many, many choices nearby, however, and early booking is recommended. For those of you without internet access to search for hotels, and possible online discounts, here are some suggestions. Closest and nicest is Best Western Eden Premier, 222 Eden Road, tel. 717-569-6444. The Days Inn on Lititz Pike is next closest and more modest in price and includes a breakfast buffet, tel. 866-460-7456. For the budget-minded, the Rodeway about 5 miles north on Rt 272 in Akron is no frills, no traffic, no breakfast, tel 717-859-1654. Most hotels in the area have AAA or AARP or other possible discounts if you ask. You can also contact the Pennsylvania Dutch Convention and Visitors Bureau for information by calling 1-800-PA DUTCH.
